I told you about this ceiling fan here, how I painted the blades. If you recall, it looked like this.
And we had a
grotesque not-quite-right lighting fixture we wanted to replace.
So I went to choir practice and when I got home the old light was gone and in its place . . .
I have no idea how they (Doug and Charlie) did it, but it’s done. Yippee!! Now the blades need to be attached with screws we do not have. So early next morning I slipped over to Home Depot and bought . . .
They’re brass – the fan blades are gunmetal/pewter. But I tried them first to see if they would work and they did. The package costs about $2.
I attached the remaining 2 blades . . .
And gave her a whirl – the GO in fandango.
It really circulates the air in this large room. Before installation I was concerned that 1.) the blades would not clear the ceiling beams and 2.) the fan would hang too low for a person to walk under.
- All clear
- All clear
As you can see, however, this saga is not over, thus the DANG in fandango.
- The remaining brass color on the fan needs to be pewtered.
- The white motor housing needs some cleaning or spray painting.
- The light needs a covering (I hate the idea of a globe) that is not horrible.
Improvement or not? Can’t decide. Not sure. Still not a fan of ceiling fans.
